AWS RoboMaker now supports the ability to configure simulation tools to diagnose or interact with RoboMaker simulation jobs. This simulation tool configuration feature provides developers flexibility to use custom simulation tools in place of, or in addition to the default simulation tools (Gazebo, rqt, rviz and terminal access tools) provided by default in RoboMaker.

Developers use tools to diagnose, visualize and interact with their simulation. . With the configurable diagnostics tool feature in RoboMaker, developers have more control over launching diagnostics tools with their simulations. In addition, developers running non-interactive simulations can help minimize costs by disabling any or all of the default RoboMaker simulation tools (Gazebo, rqt, rviz, terminal). They can also configure the exit behaviors of their simulation tools, and choose between restarting the tool upon exit or failing the simulation job entirely if an important tool shuts down.

AWS RoboMaker is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) regions.
